Sage Stallone

Law Enforcement Probing

Possible Drug Dealing

0718_sage_Stallone_article

Authorities investigating the death of Sage Stallone believe a "likely scenario" is he was dealing drugs -- specifically Hydrocodone -- generic Vicodin -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told authorities do NOT believe Sage was an addict, in no small part because of his weight.  Our sources say ... at the time of his death, the 5'7" actor (his IMDB profile incorrectly lists his height at 5'10") weighed 188 pounds.  One law enforcement source tells TMZ, "He was pudgy, and drug addicts are almost always rail thin."

Our sources say authorities did not find a single Hydrocodone tablet in Sage's house.  Yet, as we previously reported, they found more than 60 gigantic empty prescription bottles -- the kind stocked by pharmacists to fill consumer scripts.  Each bottle holds a minimum of 500 pills, so Sage probably had more than 30,000 pills, but they were all gone.

We're told LAPD detectives and L.A. County Coroner investigators are going to try and trace some of the bottles using batch numbers and serial numbers, but one well-placed source believes there's a "strong likelihood" the pills were shipped from another country.

Although the baggies of white powder found in Sage's room -- a room the maid was prohibited from entering -- have yet to be tested, our sources believe it will probably prove to be ground up Hydrocodone.  Again, however, the power has not yet been tested.

As we first reported, Sylvester Stallone met with famed private investigator Scott Ross Tuesday and Ross will be doing his own digging to find out what was going on with Sage and why he died.

A sad end to what sounds like a very troubled existence.

Since when are drug addicts "always" rail thin? Janis Joplin was on the hefty side, as was John Belushi, both of them junkies. It certainly does sound like Sage was a dealer and possible user. There is simply no other rational explanation for him to have 30,000 pills in his bedroom.

This obsessive, gratuitious coverage of Sage -- who TMZ probably never once reported on while he was alive -- is really too much.
